The arrests come after nine girls and a boy were killed when a sudden flood swept them away while they were hiking in the Tzafit River, a riverbed in southern Israel near the Dead Sea, on Thursday.

The academy's principal is reportedly one of two staff members who have been detained on suspicion of death by negligence.

The group was unable to escape the narrow canyon, hedged in by steep rock walls, when the floods hit. Army helicopters, the diving unit of the fire services and police have been dispatched to locate the missing teen.

Fifteen students were rescued - two with hypothermia.

Israeli media on Friday morning broadcast photos of the ten killed, nine girls and a boy, most of whose funerals are expected during the day.

"We all pray for better news", he added.

Israel's President Reuven Rivlin said security and rescue forces would be supported, and called on the public to follow instructions given by the police.

The rains caused also heavy traffic jams in central Israel and floods in major cities, including Tel Aviv. We will strengthen and lend help to the forces who are now working to rescue, find and treat those injured.

"Our prayers and thoughts are with our brothers, our children, and our loved ones who are in trouble". The other 15 high-school students who were with them were rescued by police and military forces.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu posted his condolences to the families on his Facebook page.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a statement: "All of Israel laments in the awful tragedy that cut short the lives of ten young, wonderful people who had such promising futures".
